I love my iPod. Listening to podcasts of radio shows from Dave Ramsey, Crown Financial Ministries, and Charles Stanley make my hour-long commute to and from work an education rather than just a grind. (In fact, I rarely listen to music.)
I'm going to add another show to my podcast favorites: "The Color of Money" from National Public Radio (NPR). It airs every week on NPR's "Day to Day" show. Michelle Singletary, the personal finance columnist for the Washington Post, is the primary contributor. The segment covers the usual range of topics, from saving for retirement, college, etc. to tips on starting a business.
Maybe the best part about it: It's informative and short, about four minutes long. Plus, with the podcast, no endless NPR fundraising segments to sit through in the fall and spring.
